PREFACE TO 1928-29 EDITION. 



WE have again pleasure in producing another issue 
of our hardy A.nnual. Nothwithstanding the high 
prices prevalent (which we do not proportionately follow), 
we have maintained the four distinct departments of this 
publication, and are pleased they are appreciated. 

Rothesay is, of course, the most prosperous. We would 
like to see its spirit of enterprise spreading among the 
rural districts. They have each and all something to be 
proud of. These cannot be properly appreciated until bet- 
ter known. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

The Public Libraries as a rule do not subscribe to 
other than the few large National Directories. The more 
numerous and detailed District Directories would cost too 
much. For years we have sent, complimentarily, copies of 
ours— which are much appreciated ; and we are prepared 
to increase this muraber by forwarding other free copies 
to any Libraries be be named by customers giving orders 
to the value of £1. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we, with prompt receipt of orders, will 
keep permanent this decided benefit. 

Those who wish Lists of Householders (arranged in 
Streets and Wards) can get that in the Official Voters' Roll 
— in whole or in parts. 

It will be noticed that our Accident Assurance coupon 
is increased from £100 to £250. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
-continual changes. 

HIGGLE & CO., Printers and Publishers 
Rothesay, July, 1928. 

P.S. — Will the many persons who consult the Bute County Directory 
in the Libraries, Reading [Rooms, Banks, Offices, Shops, etc. , through- 
out the County and beyond it, free of charge, please remember that they 
are indebted for the privilege to our Subscribers and Advertisers.

As far as we can see, the information about Millport and Cumbrae is quite cor- 
rect and thoroughly reliable, so we may take it for granted that the rest of the matter 
is th« same. The book, which runs into 144 pp., should be extremely useful and con- 
venient for the residents of the county of islands, as well as to visitors, especially those 
who have business dealings with the inhabitants.— Largs and Millport News 

This useful publication is again to hand. The publishers havo been so enter ■ 
prising as regards its compilation that the Directory is now an absolute necessity to 
business people who have dealings with the picturesque County of Bute. Tt should be 
noted that the Directory also contains a useful almanac. — Ardrossan Herald,

LONG LIVE THE BUTE DIRECTORY 

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimulating local pride 
instead of filling up the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
«ach date a local happening." Thus— [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
idea that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

standing the greatly increased cost of production, the price of two shillings has 
been maintained. 



COUNTY OF BUTE. 

THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz 
— Bute, the most populous; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cuisibkaes, off the Ayrsmre Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
marnook, off Bute. 

The total Area of the County (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3, 8()6 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothusay and 
Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14151; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In 
1891 it was 18,248 (8,057 males and 10,197 females) ; and in 1901, 18,786 (8,412 
males and 10,374 females) — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2T per cent 
There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 
For 1911, the figures were as follows :— 
Males. 
Arran - - - 2,169 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 
Cumbrae - - - 704 

*The increased total issued in the Quarterly Return of the Registrar-

Parish of North Bute. 

^"pHIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-*- village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
•sountry, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 1201 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730.

The Isle of Arran. 

r I ''HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
1 the variety of its geological deposits. The island is 36 miles in length, 
20 in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
en the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

€H4RMoftheHE4THER 

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
xl. hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 
priate. 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is a sample of the acknowledgments received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for bein^ 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-clas* 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Fokbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 
It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following; — " Flower girls in Argj'le Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are- 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter, sample or parcel rates.

SHORTHAND 

TYPEWRITING, 

ESPERANTO, «» 

BOOK-KEEPING. 



"V/TR HIGGIE'S CLASSES FOR PRACTICAL INSTRUC- 
JJl-L. TION" are conducted daring the two Winter Quarters -- 
October till December and January till March. 

PEIVATE TUITION BY ARRANGEMENT. 

Shorthand continues to be taught with a view to its subsequent useful- 
ness in Business and Professionally. 

In Typewriting" special attention is devoted to Punctuation and Capital- 
isation — a thorough knowledge of which is absolutely necessary in Practical Printing 
and cannot longer be neglected by those aspiring to be First-Class Typists. 

Esp Brant O* — This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts >>f the world. Mr Higgie is in touch with import- 
ant regions all over the world, and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere 
— -notwithstanding their different national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time whan there will he " Peace 
on earth and good will to men," which is coming yet in spite of the present times of 
'" great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hind ranee 
to peaceful re construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and miking new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Antieipitiug the b >om in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made bybasiness firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth "' The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and fri^htfulness loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall'yet reign 
in spite of all present discord an I opposition — but not without many sacrines, much 
service and suffering. Prosperity will n >t come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good. 

Book-KdQping 1 . —Instruction given in Book-Keeping and other Up-to" 
Date Business Me h>ds. Advertisement Writing is a Present Day Enviable Pro- 
fession, and the ground-work and minutiae have long been familiar to Mr Higgic, a 
practical Printer. 

Messrs HIGGIE & COY.'S ESPERANTO PUBLICATIONS 
are known, read and appreciated throughout the whole civilised world. Muiy of the 
contributions are written by up-to-date foreigners.

This missionary worked at a common alphabet for the 
many and widely different languages in this illiterate land. 
The up-to-date Japanese are discarding the Chinese hieroglyphic 
for the extended Roman alphabet to represent their language.

SPE LING REF ORM 

■mHlS IS NOT A NEW DESIRE ; BUT BESPEAKS 
J- A GREATLY INCREASED INTEREST IN A 
VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT AT THE PRESENT 

TIME. Under the appropriate heading, 

"A Wasted Year," 

there appeared, on Srd May, 1924, a Special Article in the 
Evening Citizen, Glasgow, showing that this is the time lest 
in the life of every; child in Britain while acquiring the ir- 
regular and inconsistent spelling of our language. 

The Simplified Spelins Society is promoting a 
petition to present to the Prime Minister, calling for the 
appointment of a Royal Commission — including Scholars, 
Teachers, Men of Letters and Men of Business — to consider 
the whole question, and report. 

Experiments already made by enthusiasts have proved 
eminently satisfactory, and shows how much valuable time 
will be saved for other studies by the removal of the speling 
incubus. 

The Spelina: Reformers include all classes of the people, 
and the question is not a party one. 

The Simplified Spelino- Society of Great Britain, and 
the Speling Reform Association of U. S. A., have issued 
the first number of a joint quarterly journal, " Speling." 

Shorthand could not be written without a Reformed and Phonetic Alphabet-
